Product Description

Amazon.ca

In its best moments, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is an amusingly gonzo popcorn movie fueled by the combined manic energy of its star, Nicolas Cage, who reprises his turn as the tormented Marvel Comics antihero, and directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank, Gamer). The trio's performances in front of and behind the camera seem to indicate their wish for Spirit of Vengeance to be regarded not as a sequel to the wan 2007 Ghost Rider film, but rather an entity unto itself, and in truth, the picture does work overtime to distance itself from its predecessor, from its fast-and-loose origin rewrite at the picture's opening to its tonal shift towards darker, meaner territory. That doesn't entirely translate into a better film: though the script, based on a story by David S. Goyer (Blade, Batman Begins), bears greater resemblance to its comic book origins than its predecessor, its story, which sends the Ghost Rider on a mission to protect the son of Satan (Ciarán Hinds), is unable to thread its diverse elements, which include a listless rendition of veteran heel Blackout (Johnny Whitworth), po-faced, high-tech monks led by Christopher Lambert, and Idris Elba's fighting priest, along with assorted exorcisms, rituals, and come-and-go powers, into a cohesive and believable film. That, of course, may make no difference to viewers who have come for the sheer spectacle, which, in spite of a greatly reduced budget, is provided in spades by Neveldine/Taylor's caffeinated direction and Cage's by-now trademark acting excesses (in his most unfettered moments, Cage approaches Klaus Kinski/Timothy Carey levels of scenery consumption). In doing so, they inject a sense of breakneck fun into the proceedings, regardless of its absurd elements, sorely lacking from the previous Ghost Rider adventure. Extras are limited to six deleted and extended scenes, none of which add up to anything special; those seeking more supplemental features should investigate the Blu-ray edition, which includes commentary by Neveldine/Taylor and a feature-length making-of documentary that details the film's rather torturous path to completion. --Paul Gaita

J'ai le plaisir de compléter ma série de Ghost Rider. Et il est dommage qu'il n'y en a pas d'autre avec cet acteur.
Le colis est arriver rapidement. Il était bien envelopper et je n'ai pas eut de mal à le développer. L'état du DVD est conforme a mes espérances et j'ai eut beaucoup de plaisir a le visionner avec mes amies. Merci

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Rider ups the stakes! Sept. 22 2012
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Ghost Rider:Spirit of Vengeance(released Feb/12) stars Nicholas Cage as the Ghost rider,Johnny Blaze,Johnny Whitworth as Ray Carrigan,Fergus Riordan as Danny,Ciarán Hinds as Roarke,Violante Placido as Nadya,Danny's mother,and Idris Elba as Moreau.This installment of the movie franchise(yes,you bet there will be sequels),is a film onto itself,that is you don't need to have seen the first to get this one.Also it has a far greater sense of humour and a more balls-to-the-walls dynamic than the previous venture,and I liked it.
The plot finds the Rider in eastern Europe.A black Frenchman by the name of Moreau is after protecting a boy named Danny and his mother Nadya.They are on the run from one Ray Carrigan,who works for none other than the devil himself,this incarnation going by the name of Roarke.The pair don't stop to accept Moreau's help as they're too busy fleeing from Ray,and just by the skin of their teeth.
Moreau seeks out and finds the Ghost Rider and asks him to help him to find and protect Danny,and in exchange he will rid Johnny Blaze of his inner demon.The bargain made,they set out to find and confront Ray and his boys,and get Danny back.At one point a confrontation of gigantic proportions takes place in a quarry.Ray has rendezvoused with an arms dealer who allows him the use of a bunker busting bazooka.The Ghost Rider appears and Ray goes to work,but nothing stops the Rider who ends up tearing the entire contingent of men there apart,using an immense digger that comes to life in flames.Ray is seemingly dead and the Rider has both mother and Danny,safe for the moment.
They arrive at a monastery where the monks hide the boy and his mother for their own safety and the Rider undergoes a cleansing ritual of sorts within the monastery's catacombs.

Entertaining movie - purely from the special effects perspective, and the interesting proposition of trying to save Satan's son, from Satan. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great
While it stays truer to the comic books than the first movie, it sadly falls short. The premise has tons of potential but the script, direction and editing are not the best. Read more
